This place is about 20Km from Thimpu town. You need to hire a private cab for this trip as the public transportation in this part is rare. But the place is awaesome for a medium hike of 1 hour. The path is paved with stone and mostly uphill climb. Its dense forest so sun wont bother you. As such the monastery is under renovation , so only a small part of it can be seen . The monks here were friend and they welcome us in their abode and gave some information about the the temples and gods. it was a good day !!!

We went to Tango monastery by doing a short hike for about an hour.. Helped us as we were going for a the Bumdrak trek later in the trip.. The place is good, we went to see the monks praying inside.. The hike is pretty comfortable.. Only issue is that there are major renovations taking place. So please check with your guide.

The monks trek this every day, or did since the new monastery in the valley was completed (I would go there first), but I think the reviews here are misleading - this is an easy, or even semi-easy, hike for trained, experienced sportspeople only, even if the path is beautifully cobbled. Don't even try this if you're not very fit; it has nothing to do with a normal footpath and really goes on and on. But there's one redeeming feature here, and that is that since the way is the goal, if you don't reach the actual monastery, there are plenty of beautiful vistas and resting points, and so making any part of this is worth the attempt. Just remember that elevated Bhutanese monastery hikes regularly let untrained tourists see whether there is reincarnation or not more swiftly than they had imagined...

A bit of a hike but peaceful, with quite some elevation. The path is pretty with lots of little things (urns and quotes) to see if you are tired of the beautiful green scenery.

This so far has been the most beautiful hike. Tango Monastery is under renovation. You will not be able to see the Buddha. This is a major construction area, with people wearing hard hats. I would advise tourists such as myself to stay away from this site.

It was a great and challenging hike, our first of 4 hikes in Bhutan. Elevation at Base = 2690m; elevation at the top was 2910m. Increase in elevation = 220m. The whole path was paved which made it "predictable" and easier. It was steep at some points, though. The Tango Buddhist Institute at the top was under renovation but we were fortunate to witness a prayer-cum-chanting session of the monks in their makeshift ceremonial hall. The view of the mountains and buddhist institute is nice but our succeeding hikes had far better views to offer. This hike is a good "practice" for the hike to the Tiger's Nest in terms of altitude albeit being a shorter and less steep climb. No restrooms along the way; only at the base.

Like mentioned earlier, the drive to the base point ia about 20-25 mins drive from the City. A clear marking, a parking lot and the tell-tale solitary big prayer wheel greet you at the starting point. Its a paved way all the way up to the top. If you walk non-stop, you would take 30 mins. If you take breaks, you would do in maximum an hour. The site is under renovation and majority of the buildinfs are closed. When we had gone, classes were in progress and hence the Lama in charge if the museum was occupied. Had to come back after visiting the prayer hall. Beatiful track. Dont miss it.

This amazing place is due to be closed quite soon for some major renovation work, which could take 5+ years. Preparations are already well underway, but you can still see enough to make the trek up (along a comfortable but steep path) well worth it. We felt very privileged that we got to see it before the (much needed) repairs change it forever.
